Jif Peanut Butter & Honey, reviewed

Jif Peanut Butter & Honey

I have always been a big peanut butter fan, so I like to take a chance on some of the more unusual peanut butters I’ve come across over the years, like PB Loco’s peanut butters. Jif’s [new to me] Peanut Butter & Honey peanut butter wasn’t quite as “out there” as some of PB Loco’s offerings, but seemed like it would definitely be worth a ... Read More »

Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies

Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies

The key to a good peanut butter cookie is to make sure that it has a lot of peanut butter flavor. You can achieve this in a number of ways. One is by simply using a good, flavorful brand of peanut butter (always a good idea, actually).

Peanut Butter Cup Chocolate Cake

Peanut Butter Cup Chocolate Cake

  Peanut butter cups may be the name of a specific candy, but when I hear “peanut butter cup”, I think of all kinds of chocolate and peanut butter combinations, not just the candy cups.

Toffee Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookies

Toffee Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookies

Fans of the Girl Scout’s Do-si-do cookies, also known as Peanut Butter Sandwiches, will notice some similarities between them and these  Toffee Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookies. They look similar and both have a great peanut butter flavor to them. The signature element of those cookies is their light, crisp texture.

What can you do with those besides make rice krispie treats and similar marshmallow bars? But I accepted the challenge and set about trying to come up with ... Read More »

Pillbury Simply Peanut Butter Cookies, reviewed

Pillbury Simply Peanut Butter Cookies

Homemade cookies just about always beat store bought, prepackaged cookie doughs.

The only advantage of the prepacked doughs is that they’re quicker and more convenient if you absolutely don’t have time to make ... Read More »

Brown Sugar Peanut Butter Cookies

Brown Sugar Peanut Butter Cookies

When you’re talking about cookies, it is often said that using brown sugar will result in a chewier cookie. This is partially true, as brown sugar does have a higher moisture content than regular sugar and that can help a cookie stay more moist – and therefore, chewier. It is not the only thing that can make a cookie chewy, however, as the amount of ... Read More »

Peanut Butter Cup Milkshake

Peanut Butter Cup Milkshake

I generally like my milkshakes in classic flavors like vanilla, strawberry and chocolate, with the former two being slightly favored over the latter. When you have a really good milkshake, these flavors really shine. But as with all things, variety is nice, too, and as good as a plain vanilla milkshake is, it’s nice to be able to dress it up a bit with other ... Read More »
